AGH TELEVISION PARTNER
MUSICIAN AND TALENT MANAGER
AGH TELEVISION PARTNERS: CHAD CALEK AND THOMAS LEE BOTTOM
“Over the course of the 22 years that I’ve known Curt, as my manager, he has passionately fought to protect my creative vision. As a friend, while suffering moments of self-doubt, he's not only urged me to maintain my faith in my abilities, but he’s demonstrated what is possible if you do. Through both his actions and his counsel, Curt has also taught me the true value of loyalty and the importance of maintaining your integrity at all costs, as the best way to avoid the sharks of Hollywood is to never allow yourself to become one."
- Chad Calek, AGH TV Creator and Director
As a career musician and touring artist, Curt Smith has been making music with his band, Tears For Fears, and as a solo artist, for over 30 years. In addition, Smith has also managed Chad Calek’s career as a musician and a filmmaker for 20 years. As an avid supporter of online independent distribution of both music and film, and as an active member of the social media movement that has empowered artists to have a public voice associated with their art, Calek first came to Smith in 2012 with his vision for AGH Television, in which Smith was an immediate supporter of the concept of an online original film distribution channel that catered to specific programming created by a trademark-style filmmaker. Although AGH Television has gone through many changes to keep up with technological advances of the online world, with Smith’s support, Calek launched the earliest version of AGH Television January of 2013.
